Goblins Under The Dining Table

Hu-Dad has long suspected that Chez Herd is haunted! He leaves things in one room and then finds them carried to another room.  And those objects not only are moved, by they are covered in a gooey slime (sort of like dog slobber). Now, he has photographic proof of actual goblins under the dining table!

Wait, wait, Hu-Dad. You are mixing up your nouns and verbs. That isn’t a goblin under the table. But if you would kindly drop some food from your dinner, there will be some gobbling under the table.

Dear Reader - I am not responsible for my Hu-Dad's bad puns.

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
